I highly recommend that everyone seeing Dr. Kavolus run in another direction as fast as you can. He did my knee replacement 1 year ago and now refuses to ever see me again. MY Knee is now worse than before surgery. Why! because he chooses to use Stryker replacement parts which the FDA took approval away from that company 3 years ago. How do I know this, because I went to the hospital and got my operating room report and it says that is what he used. Is this the kind of doctor you want?
